Company seeks Utah leaders' support for costly improvements
Has anyone yet noticed the inflation rate of over 5%? Is it possible Rocky Mtn
Power is struggling to stay up with it just like everyone else?
it is sad that with the economy the way that it is, that taxes and power and gas
prices are being raised so much. I can't even afford to take my kids to the
dentist anymore. I just got a second job and my husband is trying to get a swing
shift job after his regular job. When are big monopolies and government going to
take a hit, instead of sticking it to us whenever they start to feel the pain?
We should have 2 choices for serviceWe could just drop Rocky Mountain
Rocky Mountain's temper tantrum response to their failed attempt at a huge
increase is unsettling because it provides valuable insight into their business
acumen and their character. Had they chosen a reasoned response and sought to
meet with government officials to argue their case further, that would have
reflected more favorably on their management. Instead, we now know these folks
need further scrutiny and oversight. Rocky Mountain, as a matter of
indisputable fact, has raped, pillaged and plundered the the electrical grid
system in their service area by failing to make needed improvements and adopting
a "when it fails, we'll replace it" mindset that causes individuals and families
to suffer with no recourse. Also, Rocky Mountain doesn't want to be the energy
bargain as the cost of natural gas and oil-based fuels (propane, heating oil,
gasoline and diesel)ascends through the stratosphere. Ask yourself
why Utah Power & Light sold out and why we've gone through so many subsequent
sales. There's a reason folks. It wasn't for your benefit, guaranteed.
If I'm not mistaken, doesn't UP&L, sorry Rocky Mountain, sell the power they
make in the Utah power generations facilities on the open market? I
also thought I read somewhere that they produced more power in the state than
the state uses so they sell quite a bit of power at higher rates than Utahns
pay, partly because we are a power producing state as opposed to like
California, that consumes more power than is produced there.
After Enron, it can be no less than "trust but verify". We need experts to look
in depth at this situation. If they deserve the money, give it to them, if not
then don't and tell everyone why and what the situation is.
